Ngon Gallery restaurant is hands down a must-try when in Nha Trang
If you’re honeymooning in Vietnam you’re more than likely going to visit the growing, bustling city of Nha Trang, known for its beaches, diving sites and offshore islands. Its main beach is a long, curving stretch along Tran Phu Street backed by a promenade, hotels and seafood restaurants.
One of the latest additions to the fare on offer is Ngon Gallery restaurant which recently opened its doors in the Citadines Bayfront Nha Trang Hotel and seats up to 200 diners for an international seafood buffet from 5pm-11pm daily.
In addition to sashimi and home-made sushi, salads, soups and desserts, the buffet menu includes fresh locally-sourced seafood such as lobster, tiger prawns, oysters, crabs, scallops, fish, octopus, mussels and clams, meats such as steak, lamb, pork and chicken, as well as vegetarian dishes. Diners determine if their seafood and meats are grilled, steamed or wok-fried and choose from sauces ranging from spicy tamarind, teriyaki, Sichuan and pepper to mushroom cream and spring onion salsa.
The good news for diners is they can order as much chili lobster as they like during the buffet; the combination of the tender lobster meat and the spiciness of the sauce is something else that’s hands down a must-try when in Nha Trang.
Crafted by British Michelin-starred chef John Burton-Race and Iron Chef Vietnam 2012 winner Nguyen Thanh Tung, the restaurant’s signature dish chili lobster celebrates Nha Trang’s famed lobster, cooked in a sweet, salty, chili-hot tomato sauce and served with thick slices of toasted bread.
